    I looked for a thread like this but, couldn't find one. Sometimes i get that i'm reading a foreign or local magazine, i like the cover look but, when i want to try the colours on myself at my local beauty counter, some of those products are not available (cos there are only realised in United States, discountinued, etc.) or it may be the case i refuse to pay an excesive amount of $$$ for a product so, i thought it would be nice to share some dupes.

    Revlon Cream Blush Not So Nude (MAC Hello Kitty Tippy blush)
    Revlon Creme Gloss Just Blushed (MAC Blankety lipstick)
    Dior 5 colour eyeshadow Incognito (just managed to find only 2 colours that were accurate to this quint, MAC Falling Star/Orb eyeshadows)
    L'oreal Colour Riche Sugar Plum (754) (MAC Pleasing lipstick)

    I know that some of the Revlon matte lipsticks are dupes of other brands.
    Nude Attitude is a dupe of MAC's Myth
    Really Red is a dupe of Nar's Cruella matte lipstick pencil

    I know I've heard of other drugstore dupes but I can't for the life of me remember right now. I also know I've stumbled across websites that have lists as well. I'll see if I can find them and post them.

    one of the more popular dupes is the milani mineral blush in luminous as a dupe for NARS orgasm blush...i have both blushes and i have to say, they are nearly identical. the NARS definitely is a bit more smooth and a little more pigmented, but overall the milani is a great option if you're looking to save a bit of money.

    I think this is super hilarious... Prescriptives does dupes of Chanel's eyeshadow quads.

    Cool:

    exotic excess

    The warm shades actually look gorgeous, they are similar to the Chanel Mystic Eyes quad shades. They're so alike... I think Chanel should sue them :rofl:

    Do you guys remember Proenza pink?
    Well Revlon's Pink Pout is very very similar in color, and a really good quality lipstick.

    ^ :buss: Thanks for that, chanelandfur. I've always wanted to try out such a color for my lips, but I heard it was a discontinued color. :doh::cry:
